Okay, so, I just got my 8700g Thursday, and I'm excited about using it as a modem for my computer.
I set it up per the guide on BlackBerryFAQS.Com, and I get an error.
So, I searched the BB Forums. This is the only thread I found specific to setting up the 8700g on T-Mobile. I tried the changes mentioned by the original poster...

Since then I have not been able to use the device as a modem, I keep getting the error "Remote computer terminated the connection". I have no idea what got updated on my device for this behaviour.
Anyone seen this problem?
...And now I'm having the same exact problem quoted above!
What the frak is going on here?!?
Is anyone successfully using their T-Mobile 8700g as a modem as of December 26th, 2006?
If so, PLEASE SHARE YOUR SECRET(S) IN THIS THREAD! Because I'm starting to suspect something's fishy here! It must be those frakkin' toasters, they're always up to no good!
And if this question is answered in another thread, DO NOT just post "use search" or your comments WILL be reported to a mod! I DID search, and this is the only thread I found, other than the 20-pages long thread in the BB Guides section. Tomorrow I will be trying a couple more things I saw mentioned in that thread, but in the meantime, if someone is currently getting the 8700g to work on T-Mo and would care to post PRECISELY how they got it to work, step-by-step, I'd be much obliged.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
